Hi, I'm trying to plan a summer holiday for my family, and am overwhelmed by the possibilities! I'd really appreciate any advice on itinerary or places to stay. (I'm posting this in a number of forums)
We're travelling with our 2 small sons - eldest will be 3 by then and the younger just 18 months. They're both pretty well travelled, but we will be looking to stay in apartments/houses or suites as previous experience has proved staying in a regular hotel room is not really a holiday!
I'm pretty fixed on the idea of flying into Dulles and out of Boston - but what to so in between is the confusing factor. So far I'm considering Shenandoah, Lancaster PA, Baltimore, Hyannis, Boston - but am tempted by lots of other places, especially upstate New York.
We live practically on the Atlantic coast here in N Ireland, so a seaside holiday isn't essential, but we do want at least part of our trip to be restful, by the pool type thing. We've been to the Rockies and enjoy the mountains , opportunities for walking/ bike hire without being too sporty (hard with 2 small kids). I'm interested in history, politics, literature - husband is more scientifically minded, and the kids are obviously a bit young for too much sightseeing.
Any suggestions gratefully received.
